*Announcement: Melbourne Linguistics in the pub 24 February 2015*

 Language descriptions, particularly descriptive grammars often form a part
of language documentation projects. The recent special LDC publication
(Toshihide and Rice (eds.) 2014) discusses topics in grammaticography,
particularly aimed at those undertaking their first major project with an
undescribed language. In the volume, Mosel (2014) discusses how combining
language documentation and corpus-based methods in the analysis of an
undescribed language helped her account for language internal variation and
filtered through to how she presented her grammatical description, making a
potentially more reusable and verifiable document.

Previously Linguistics in the Pub has discussed what a good descriptive
grammar should include (May 2010). As it has been a while, February's LIP
will again focus on grammaticography. Namely, how we go about and present
descriptive grammars and whether our methods should or could change?
